Step 1 of this project, where I was concentrating on the negative space, is shown in the two top pictures (top row). For step 2, I started working on 8 more 6×8” canvases (out of which I’ll choose my favourite 6), again working from coloured backgrounds, but this time I’m doing studies of the plant itself. I’m working in layers and keep trying things until the final image feels right and so far, the only one I consider “finished” is the canvas in the top photo (bottom left), so they may all end up looking quite different as things progress.
